Trend Report Part One: The Glamourous World in Fur, Sequins, And Fringe

Miranda Priestley explained it best. The trends that appear on the runway are the same ones that we will be seeing the next season, particularly at fast-fashion retailers like Zara and H&M. Though each designer has a different interpretation, there were some notable similarities between looks on the runways this season. I’ve started to compile a list of the most prominent trends for Fall 2014. Here are the first three.

1. Fur

You didn’t even have to look at the shows to notice that huge fur coats are huge right now. Whether you blame the Polar Vortex or Macklemore, the majority of street style stars have been sporting furs. The runway has been no exception. And especially in white. More on that topic for sure.

2. Sequins

Every single show I’ve been to has had some sort of sparkly look. Seriously. Sequins + fur = some serious old Hollywood vibes. And I’m not complaining.


3. Fringe

The sequined pantsuit from Jay Godrey (above) was a perfect nod to the 70s. Luckily, another 70s trend is back to complement it. Fringe. I’m normally not so gung-ho for fringe, but these looks from Mara Hoffman and Jay Godrey are beginning to change my mind.

Notable Look: The denim dress and jacket combo at Lee Jean Youn giving me total Britney/Justin VMA vibes. Maybe we should leave the denim on denim look in 2001.
